Michael Moore Admits Failure

Michael Moore just posted about his anti-renewable propaganda film.

As he writes:

“we have failed”

That is certainly true. That film failed to grasp basic facts on renewable energy. That film attacks Bill McKibben in bad faith. That film tries to slow down the only possible way to reduce fossil fuel use.

While it is true that the transition to renewable energy should be much faster, the last thing we need for that to happen is attacks on renewable. Leave that to the fossil fuel and nuclear crowd.

On the other hand, as I said before, all these talking points have been debunked over and over. There may have been one or two people taking them seriously ten years ago, when it was still open to debate if renewable energy would be enough to solve the problem.

Now I think that Moore not only failed to provide any useful information in his film. I also think he failed in his effort to slow down renewable energy.
